In just a few short years, The Jukes have garnered a reputation as a first class band, their repertoire is filled with vintage blues tunes and good blues never really goes out of style.

The Jukes play the music well, have a deep sense of tradition for what they do and play the kind of raw, vibrant blues that harks back to the golden era of Chicago in the 50's and 60's. Household names like Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson and Elmore James sit alongside some of the new names on the scene like Nick Moss, Jimmy Burns and Willie Kent in The Jukes’ set list.

Those that are getting tired of all the overblown soul-blues and blue-rock projects that seem all the rage at the moment, or think that traditional Chicago-style blues has all but died or become little more than a museum display obviously haven't heard of The Jukes.

At every gig they deliver, as the band locks in to those classic grooves with some rock solid old school ensemble playing, and each time enhance their reputation as a live outfit.
